“Linguistic Ethnography: Interdisciplinary Explorations, edited by Julia Snell, Sara Shaw and Fiona Copland, offers an insight into Linguistic Ethnography (LE) informed methodologies and epistemologies across a broad range of disciplines and sectors, from healthcare, to the workplace, to education. … It is recommended for novice linguistic ethnographers and more experienced researchers alike.” (Jessica Bradley, Bellaterra Journal of Teaching & Learning Language & Literature, Vol. 10 (1), February-March, 2017)

“This collection breaks new ground, and does so effectively, in a number of ways. It provides a detailed account of the historical, theoretical, and methodological foundations of linguistic ethnography. … the volume is highly recommended to both established linguistic ethnographers and research students who are new to the field.” (Changpeng Huan, Applied Linguistics, February, 2016)
